John, thank you, and please accept my apologies. I should have been clearer 
that your contributions are always both welcome and appreciated. Except for 
the fact that you no longer get a formal vote in setting priorities and 
directions for the group, you should always feel free and indeed encouraged 
both to move things forward when you can, and to be proactive in contacting 
me and the group to make suggestions for what you feel we should do (as any 
member of the public can), or to discuss how you can contribute should you 
wish to.

In this case, given where the actions have been assigned, I suggest that 
you work with Larry (ACTION-515) and me to prepare for the upcoming F2F 
suggestions on how we might best move forward, both with the writing you 
have started and with broader TAG efforts relating to security. Of course, 
there's no obligation on your part, but anything you can do is gratefully 
accepted. Indeed, if you have the time and inclination, you are welcome to 
join us in person for discussions of security or anything else that may be 
of interest. Just let me know in time to have Amy include you in the food 

Thank you!
